Friday 16th Sept 2011, The Pride of Tameside awards were held at the COMS/The Council House or Manchester City’s Etihad Stadium.
& Your’s truly was nominated for an award
While waiting for things to start, I got a little nervy and popped to find a loo, I saw an open door and knew it wasnt the toilet but it was a perfect place for a piccy
The award I was in for (Physical achiever of the year) was only 3rd on the list, so once the food was done, raffle tickets were sold and former Gymnast Craig Heap had given a rousing speech, then it was down to business pretty darn quick !
and, like any good story, this one has a happy ending
The evening was ended perfectly with me getting a chance to hold a Gold & Silver medal & Get a picture with Craig
The Biggest Irony is that I’m from a small village in the middle of nowhere and that’s around 5 miles from where Craig is from !….Maybe it IS a small world !
